Índice de velocidad de la llanta

Índice de velocidad de la llanta

Si se pregunta qué es un índice de velocidad para las llantas, ha llegado al lugar correcto. El índice de velocidad es otra parte esencial del rendimiento de su llanta. The speed symbol located on your tire indicates the maximum speed capability of the tire when properly loaded and inflated.

Conozca el índice de velocidad de su llanta

  • Los índices de velocidad se señalan con letras, y cada letra representa una velocidad entre 75 y 186 mph. The most common are L, M, N, P, Q, R, S, T, U, H, V, W, and Z.
  • Al comprar llantas nuevas, elija un juego que cumpla al menos con el índice de velocidad mínima sugerida por el fabricante del vehículo. Please refer to your vehicle owners manual.
  • While your speed rating is typically faster than the speed limit of the road, always follow the rules of the road (i.e. posted speed limits, road surfaces and weather conditions).
  • Speed ratings are based on laboratory tests where the tire is pressed against a large diameter metal drum to reflect its appropriate load, and run at ever increasing speeds until the tire's required speed has been met. The speed ratings only apply to tires that have not been damaged or altered.
  • A tire that has been cut or punctured no longer retains the original speed rating, even after being properly repaired. A punctured tire that has been properly repaired has a maximum speed capability of 85 mph.

Asegúrese de tener en cuenta que los fabricantes de llantas prueban sus neumáticos y asignan su propio índice de velocidad.
